Something exciting yet scary happened today, we got discharged!!! After a total of 55 days inpatient (definitely felt like an eternity), we were sent to our home away from home, The Alyssa House.
There aren’t enough words to express the gratitude we have for the surgeons, doctors, residents, NURSES and all staff at UVA. This was a really difficult road and had some bumps but because of them, my Mason is healthy and alive. They became like family to us and accepted us (mainly me) through all our bad moments. We will be forever grateful for each person whom we crossed paths with during this journey. We made so many memories, started a new “life”, and made new friends. It’s far from over, but how exciting it is to let this little guy run around in a home. A huge thank you to the family of Alyssa who started their foundation (The Alyssa House) and all the donors/volunteers who have given us a home for the remainder of our stay here. There’s nothing like knowing for the first time in two months, our family will all be together this weekend. This isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon and Mason is leading us to the end!!! #masonstrong
